70 – Salem Con – Salem, MA


Harley has a Paranormal Hangover! On this week’s episode, Harley heads to the east coast to investigate the investigators at the third annual Salem Con in the Historic Haunted Hawthorne Hotel in lovely Salem, MA.

This event has all a ton of the experts in oddities all in one place. This is a two-day event that includes a ton of Q&A sessions with huge names in the paranormal field, but that is just the tip of the iceberg. There is also four separate ghost hunting adventures all over the town of Salem.

Harley had a great interview with Marc Arvilla and Lauren Sheridan, co-Founders of Salem Con, among a metric tonne of other titles and accomplishments. They also do a Podcast called Paranormal Hangover….so just another interview with people that make Harley look lazy.

On top of telling us all about Salem Con and all the travel secrets, Marc tells about his Demonology studies and Lauren tells us all about her super power(she can make anybody cry).

Harley also called a hundred gas stations to get the skinny on Salem Mass. Apparently, Salem is awesome and beautiful.

No Episode of the Travel Oddities Podcast would be complete without a place to grab a bite, and we had to go to Sea Level to find it for you…oh and Brett crashed the second half of show!

61 – America’s Stonehenge – Salem, NH


Brett and Harley try not to be crushed by America’s Stonehenge, as they dodge the tolls in their travels to Salem, NH. Salem New Hampshire, also known as the other Salem may hold one of the most mysterious oddities so far. What is this rock formation on the shire? Is it a work of Native art or did it have more sinister uses from early Irish settlers? Perhaps our guest, David Goudsward can shed some light-hearted humor on this and enlighten us on the real story behind one of America’s most mysterious stone structures.

In the news we discuss a Bond like gadget to avoid tolls and the grave consequences of not paying your tolls in Florida. Let’s just say, the death penalty sounds better.

Brett’s Top 5 facts you didn’t know about New Hampshire.

Why it is imperative that you get in “the club” when you are visiting Maddie’s Bagels in Salem. Just ask for Val.
